So I found some great doodled nature motifs on Urbanthreads.com and decided that I would make the tree with all my shades of browns and greens. Once I was done with the embroidery I thought I knew I had some fabric scrap bags lying around.... which is my favorite thing to use! And I made this fun nature/green themed quilted pillow!

The pillow front is layered with batting and I just kind of did some free motion quilting! I hope you enjoy it!

Oh, I DO enjoy it! Improv as you go pieces are the best! This turned out so well. You are my hero.

You're on a roll with beautiful pillows! (I say that as I look at the beautiful pillow you made for me!)  I love the embroidery, and the colors of this.  The off center placement of the tree is great!

fiddlegirl - I thought of you as I pulled out the colors! All greens! ha ha! It seems whenever I use green I think of you now!

Leslie - Thank you! I had originally planned on centering it! Then I thought hey if I'm just using scraps there's no rule about it having to be centered so I worked it my way! Thanks again! I love the pillow I made you too! I've made another noe similar to it, but your's is still the best!

jexx - Thanks! I look forward to being partnered with you in a upcoming Leslie swap! I think you do great work!

Mare - Thanks! The embroidery really "completed" this scrappy pillow!
